Shinwa swords have a quality standard like no other and this one is no exception! This exquisite Knights Dragon katana features a heat-forged Damascus steel blade that has been folded more than 2,000 times for pure cutting power with a heavy blood groove in the traditional katana design. The hardwood handle offers genuine ray skin in with black nylon cord wrap, brass menuki, and cast zinc tsuba. The scabbard is a glossy black with a water transferred green dragon design.
Shinwa swords are made by hand using traditional methods in the ancient sword-making township of Lonquan. The sword-making history of this town can be traced back to the twentieth year of the Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty – exceptional sword making continues there still today. The swordsmiths of Lonquan can apprentice for up to six years before they begin to forge these functional works of art on their own.
Each Shinwa sword is hand forged at temperatures of up to 1,100 °F and continuously heated, folded, hammered and shaped before being oil quenched and then straightened. Damascus steel blades are folded as many as ten times to yield up to 2,056 layers of premium Damascus steel. After quenching the blade is then ground and hand sharpened and polished by the swordsmith on a series of wet stones. Each set of these wet stones contains a finer level of silicate particles, which produces an even sharper edge. In the final stages of this painstaking process, the tsuka is wrapped and tsuba and other fittings are added before a thin coat of oil is added to the blade to prevent corrosion.

I Was Skeptical about buying a Shinwa sword because I wasn't able to find much about the quality or reliability. But I took a chance because the sword looked really good and i could just return it if I was not satisfied. The Sword is great! Its beautiful and sturdy and the craftsmanship seems top notch. I am not a sword expert, but after years of buying cheap swords I can tell you that this is not one. After a little sharpening it was able to cut through plastic, and wood. GREAT Sword Very Satisfied!!
Just got this sword for Christmas it's not as sharp as my antique katana but I still love it and plan on having lots of fun with it. Lol
I know this Shinwa Katana was just added to the site, but as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I am not disappointed! The patterns of the red and black Damascus steel are amazing and I've been straight up destroying bamboo stalks with it! Don't wait to buy this awesome sword!!! Do it, you WILL NOT REGRET IT!
